CLAREMORE, Oklahoma -- A couple of Tulsa-area trick riders have made it big! They're featured in a new movie "Cowgirls n' Angels," about a young girl who sets out to find her father.

Haley Ganzel and Dusta Kimzey are two Oklahoma girls who rode their way to the big screen.

"I didn't ever think I'd ever have a role in a movie, but it happened," Haley said.

It happened because the girls are skilled trick riders - two of the best in the world. So their unique and, at times dangerous, talent landed them both in the new movie Cowgirls and Angels.

But the girls weren't the only Oklahomans to step in front of the camera. Haley's little brother, Holt, was cast as the lead character's stunt double.

Holt admits he was hesitant at first, but it wasn't hard for the movie producer to talk him into saddling up for the part.

"It was all right after I figured out what I would get paid," Holt said.

The entire movie was filmed in Oklahoma. It's playing in theaters across the country.
